I have given my wifi password to my flatmate, I've asked him not to share the password with anyone else!
Is there anyway I can see who's connected via the router & who's ever connected via the router etc.
Are there any stats / logs or something that indicate how much each user is using in terms of bandwidth and when they are using it etc.
I have the new D-link Sky router
thanks in advance for any help.

Re: User Monitoring
The following instructions are for the Netgear 934G, but should be similar for your D-Link.
Sign into the router by open a browser and entering the address: 192.168.0.1
The Username & password are:
Click on the tab 'ATTACHED DEVICES'
This will show you what is connected. If he has a M$ Operating system, then the name of the PC will appear when it is connected. I don't know about Linux ones.
Mobiles, TVs & the Sky STB tend not to show a name, just their MAC address.
Now if you want to prevent anyone from connecting via Wireless without your consent, even with the correct password, follow the next set of instructions.
Click on the 'SETUP' tab. Select 'Wireless Station Access List' by clicking on the red writing 'SETUP ACCESS LIST'.
Now what you need to do is add each and every WiFi device that you want to allow access to your router. If they are already connected, then the MAC address will be shown.
Once you've added them all, enable this feature by ticking the box beside 'Turn Access Control On'. Then click 'Apply'.
If these last instructions aren't clear, read the passages of instructions below the settings. I'd also highly recommend that you save all these settings by clicking on the 'MAINTENANCE' tab and selecting 'Backup Settings'.
Also remember that if you purchase a new WiFi product, you will need to add it to the list of 'Trusted Wireless Stations' before it can work properly.
